Umm, that last paragraph in the description seems really passive aggressive to me, especially with the recent changes. Is it something we want in the description, and does it really add anything about the trope?

Paragraph in question for reference:

Some viewers have to ask... is this really an accurate depiction of a Romantic Two-Girl Friendship? Did writers use Schoolgirl Lesbians to draw in an audience, and then take the easy way out? Or are the Western fans projecting their own views in regards to female relationships and romance in general, on media that comes from a completely different culture? As one can imagine, the Values Dissonance at play here leads to predictable results in many modern audiences outside of Japan.

I've pulled it.

Looks like an unnecessary paragraph. There is actually a discussion for page descriptions in general.

To me that paragraph sounds like... let's say "someone with a negative view of same sex relationships" who finds the trope objectionable, and is trying to paint it in a negative light without coming off as a jerk. Like you said, it's really passive aggressively condemning and adds nothing to the trope as a whole. Just axe the whole paragraph, I say.

I want to suggest a more succinct title: Platonic Yuri
